the Gold Zone. The lead they are
working on gives values in free gold.
THE PUBLIC HALL.
Four men are working on the French
group, east of Lake creek and about
mx miles from Lardo. There is a
large lead of high-grade copper ore.
' We are glad to see that the new
public hall is now complete, and hope
to see the accounts all cleared up. The
list of subscribers should be published,
with the names and amounts paid by
each, and  the  amounts  in  arrears, if

nave completed the year's assessment

A 30-foot tunnel was run. Another
jo feet will have to be run before the
lead is encountered.
Development work for the season
was completed this week on the Golden
Eagle group, about two miles east of
Poplar. A 50-foot incline was sunk
and a 30-foot drift run. The lead is
about three feel wide and carries good
Kol-J values.
Lric Strand, Henry Magnussen and

Yesterday the final arrangements were made by which the
Spyglass company entered into ownership of the mine.
After examining the property, an agreement was entered
into between J. A. McGee, manager of the company, and
John Winquist, the original owner, for the final payment to
be made on the property at a slight discount. Although
the bond does not expire until February, Mr. McGee was
so well satisfied with the results from development that he
advised the company to make final payment, providing a
reasonable discount was allowed.   The transfer will be made
in Nelson tomorrow.
The lower tunnel on the Spyglass is in 160 feet with two
feet of ore in the face. Buildings will at once be erected
for the accommedation of the men. Ore sacks have been
ordered, and regular shipments will be made from the mine
as soon as'the government makes the promised repairs to
the trail.
Sandon lodges, B. C., and Brockville,
Ont., and Calama, Washington, were
present. After the ceremonies an excellent banquet was  served.
Dancing classes are held every Friday evening in Poplar. This is an excellent opportunity for those not familiar with modern steps and rag-time
music, to become proficient in the
hitch-and-kick, the spread, skin-the-
cat, clearing the five-barred- gate, and
other contortions in which it is necessary for the youth of the present day to
practice in order to get their money's
worth out of the poor, inoffending ballroom floor. Everybody is welcome.
A web-foot can learn to skim over a
waxed floor as gracefully as a Palouser
can step over gopher holes.
J. O. Moore, road superintendent,^ mt.
left Monday, after spending three days
inspecting the trails up Lake, Cascade
and Poplar creeks. When he left no
definite plan had been decided on as to
the work to be undertaken. There are
so many improvents needed in this
much neglected district, that it is diffi-
for the road superintendent to decide
were the best results could be obtained
by the expenditure of the appropriation
at his disposal. However, a little
will be done to make the trails now in
use passable. At the next session of
the legislature it is hoped that at least
$100,000 will be appropriated for the
building of roads and trails in the Poplar district.

and to whom paid, so that the people
may have the matter settled to their
satisfaction and have the building out

at once to the secretary, E. L. Master-
son.
The Nugget will be pleased to print
this statement if the committee will be
good enough to give us the figures,
and we are sure that a clear balance
sheet will do much to further work of a
like character in the future.

MINING ASSOCIATION.
The Provincial Mining association
has sent three representatives to the
mining congress now meeting at Portland, Oregon, lo take part in the deliberations there, for the interests of
the two countries are identical in respect to mining. The codification of
the laws relating to mining is to be
brought up and discussed and it cannot
help but be of benefit to the provincial
association in its work towards amending the mining laws here. The great
importance of this was referred to in
the last issue of The Nugget.
The special representative of the
Provincial association is W. J. Sutton,
geologist to the Esquimalt and Na-
naimo railway, and a member of both
the Canadian and American Mining
Institutes.
A special request for a copy of the
provincial proceedings was sent for by
the •committee in charge of the arrangements, which was immediately
sent.

Poplar, B. C, August 26, 1904.
It costs the Old Dominion company
Irom 15 to $6 per ton to mine its product, and at times the cost has
reached $8 per ton.
The Detroit Copper company, Ari
zona, is doubling its concentrating
capacity, which will give it. when
completed, a capacity of 1.C00 tons
in 24 hours. It will require about
eighteen months to make the change.

of 5,217,300 ounces Next comes another American mine, viz the Daly-
West of Utah, with a reported pro
duction of 4,382,228 ounces of silver
for 1903. The mines of the Cceur
d'Alenes come next in importance in
silver production, though they are
not individually in a class wif,h any
ot the above properties, the Cceur

When Joe Wolf struck Cripph

capital ot a dozen turkeys. Fiom
the proceeds of their ;ale he started a
tent hotel whci <) he prospered so well
that afterwards he started the Palace

and became very r»ch.
The first hotel in Cripple Creek
was  the  Gourley   house.   Beds  at
first were $3 per nig! t, and for that
money thejguert was ajlojj^iojskeii

>^\ A gretn wrher states that the
moral tone of Canada is higher than
any other Christian nation because
the divorce statistics are lower. It is
the law that makes it so, as it is so

country. What is needed is a liberal

Copper mining is an industry that is
rapidly decreasing in importance in
Great Britain. Forty years ago the
production of copper ore and copper
precipitate amounted to upwards of
21Q0O) tons, whereas in 1902 the
production, was only 6,112 tons. Corn
wall is tin main source in the United
Kingdom of the upply of this ore.
Tin mining, which is also mainly
confined to Cornwall, has likewise
greatly decreased.
One of the biggest engineering
feats in the West, the first of the
United States government irrigation
canals, is nearing completion in Nevada. The canal will be 32 miles
long and will include the boring of
thsee tunnels—1,400, 900 and 400
feet respectively. This canal will
irrigate 300,000 acres of land, upon
which it is calculated from ELLOQQ
40,000 families can find homes. The
cost of construction was $1,000,000.
Toe next great irrigation canal will
be the one for the irrigation of the
land around Yuma in California. For
this purpose the waters of the Grand
river in Colorado, one ot the principal tributaries ot the Colorado river,
are to be stored. The dam site is at
Kremmling, hich is 1,200 miles

Dogs of high and low degree will
compete for premiums in Spokane
from October 5 to 8 in the bench
show which is to be given in con nee
tion with the Spokane Interstate Fair.
It is hoped to have 400 ot the finest
blooded dogs on the Pacific coast at
this dog show The sight ot the
"four hundred" in dogdum gathered
together in one assemblage for four
days ought to be inspiring. At any
rate, it will furnish an interesting
study for those who appreciate a good
dog and know the difference between
one and a common cur. Those who
wish to obtain a dog for any particular purpose, or for general purposes,
will be able to pick out good animals
for the right places. Interest between
the fanciers of Spokane and other
cities for the prizes will be keen this
year. Last year at the dog show
Spokane lost most at the premiums to
competitors in coast towns. Many of
the deg men of Spokane since then
have secured better animats and
have them in better condition, all
with a view to beating thoir coast
competitors. It remains to be seen
whether chey will succeed.
San bin 11 Humor.
Next to the Americans, said Max
Nordau, recently, I think that the
Saubians are the most humorous people in the world. A Saubian if he
has nothing funny to say, keeps

my early youth I called on a Saubian
maiden. She was very pretty. Perhaps I stayed longer than I should.
Suddenly, at any rate, the young

from upstairs: "Gretchen, Gretchen!
